[video clip] >> i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican presidents, but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment, we will fight tooth and nail. i promise you there will be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop them from usurping the constitution, running roughshod over congress. you will see one heck of a debate if he decides to try to do this. host: that was banned all. jerry and san pedro, california. caller: how are you? i am not in favor of's president executive action against gun ownership. -- i'm not in favor of president obama's action against gun ownership. i support what rand paul said. people should be able to defend ourselves and defend our country against tyranny. i believe the founding fathers made that a key them
